My son is sitting the last of the Grammar School tests on Wednesday. Then just KES and Priory to go in January.

Anyone else sitting the QM test? I understand it's nfer VR and NVR.

Good luck to all the children taking the test.

My son is also sitting this exam - thankfully for us this is the last one and we are both looking forward to it, as it has been a really stressful year or son.

Anyway good luck to all the children ... :wink:

Yes, it is NFER based but my understanding is that it is more time pressured and many more questions than Bishop Vesey's/Sutton, so a little warning that this may be the case would be advisable for those who did the Sutton exams and are expecting a re-run. I think it is something like 85 to 100 VR compared to 45 in Sutton, and possibly 60+ instead of the 40 non-verbal. Maybe someone else will have exact figures. So few of my pupils do it and only as backup so I rarely get feedback.

It is also, I believe, multiple choice verbal reasoning--again not like Sutton--so make sure they can use this to their advantage e.g. only having to possibly decode first 3 letters if they're unique etc.
